In our eighteenth episode we introduce you to Brady Fry, owner of Fry Classic Construction located in Nashville TN. This week’s episode features a topic near and dear to our heart as a small business owner – Becoming Better. We spoke with Brady about what happens to your business when you connect with other leaders and seek new perspectives or ask for help.

“I just think that as a leader the first thing you have to acknowledge is, what do I have to do to lead these people? Because the growth of this business is going to be my ability to accomplish things through others.

Feeling on an Island

Small businesses are frequently fighting to move their business forward. When you can come together with industry peers “there’s this reciprocity that you gain that makes everybody better,” says Fry. Reciprocity is where growth really happens.

Set yourself up to handle feedback from peers. Some tips:  sometimes you have to hear the honest truth, position your mind to be willing to accept the feedback, you will receive better feedback from people you trust and respect. However, be careful when you ask for feedback. Consider what their motivations are and why are they giving it to you.
